I've been intrigued by these tractors since they were mentioned here. This one is on Ebay. At the Elec Trak site I especially like the work done by Don Barry in the gallery.

I have an E-12 that I picked up last summer, I have not done anything to it yet. It needs at least batteries and I believe it has at least one short. They do have unbelievable torque. It is a little way down on my to do list. Rob

Here's another interesting Elec-Trak site. I would suspect the biggest reason for the demise of electric tractors was the owners' failure to escrow $$$ for battery replacement.[A href='http://www.geocities.com/electraktractors/']http://www.geocities.com/electraktractors/[/a]

They had so many good ideas. I was wondering what the strap was in front then found out it's the front electric lift. GE had to wonder why nobody was beating down their doors... It seems to meet the needs of most people..MadManX

Woody Yes, Don's presentation was an awsome thing to follow!!! I remember hearing of them, hmmmmmm, A while back, but was kewl to see that site!! And, BTW, Anyone who has done any serious sandblasting, should look very closely at your product!!! I figure sandblasting as about 3 notches lower than welding on my scale!!! hehehehe!!!!

Woody, For a friend in the early 80's that burned the operating switches out of his I converted it to a gas engine/hydro unit and still left the 3 speed behind it. This tractor would travel between 1/8mph to 16 mph and had lots of torque. Put a 16 horse horizontal shaft engine on it. I had to put hydraulic motors on the mower deck, and hydraulic speed throttles in/line to settle the mower down but it worked out fine. I put the hydro tank and filter under seat where some of the batteries were. Unit still is working for him..

Marion, I have an 582 Cub Cadet with a bad 16 HP Briggs twin. I'm working out details to power it electrically. Use the electric motor through the existing but shortened drive shaft, through the creeper gear box and existing 3 speed transaxle. Most of the batteries will be up front. I'm stopping down at the local golf cart factory a couple miles away and see if I can get most of what I need there. I figure I could power the mower deck with an electric motor through the belt system...MadManX

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
